This is the formula? Perimeter of base x height
6 rectangles. Find the area of the 4 sides. Omit the top and bottom. Add up the 4 sides.
what's the diff b/w a normal area and laternal area?
Lateral area is the area of the sides sans the bases. That's why the problem is so specific as to the base edges because the base areas are not part of the lateral (sides) area.
Still didn't got it. sorry.
that makse sence thank u. god i hate geometry.
84 cm2 The lateral area is the sum of two congruent 4 by 6 rectangles and two congruent 3 by 6 rectangles. That gives 2 (24) plus 2(18) = 84 square cm.
Geo is good..
that's same as S.A. of a cuboid?
Yes. The formula is perimeter of the base times the height.
